Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Herman and Vicki presently reside in Southern California, but both grew up in the Midwest and have strong family ties in Michigan and Wisconsin. Spend summers at their cottage on East Bay in Traverse City. Totally in love with the area and all it has to offer. Very pleased to be able to share it all with you and your family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
The Village at Grand Traverse offers a relaxing place to stay, while being close to the many attractions Traverse City and the surrounding region has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Every condo in the Commons was carefully designed to take advantage of the architectural beauty of this over 100 year old building. This corner unit is especially beautiful because of the many windows and the view that soars over the trees and touches the bay.
